free crochet pattern, free crochet snowflake doily


If you’ve been following my blogs, you’ll know that I’m trying to add a few Christmassy cheery ideas to my blog.

Just before Xmas I managed to make and add quite a few lovely ideas to my blog, and I have decided to continue on that lovely creative process , so welcome back and let’s have fun.

Materials usedToday I have used ~ about a little bit of our lovely Indian Red Rose Metallic cotton yarn with a 1.3 mm crochet hook ;

Size made : 3.25” diameter

Difficulty level : Easy to Intermediate Skill level

Stitches used :
Magic circle : To refresh your skill, please view this easy video

Chainless dc start : Instead of the usual dc row start with ch 2 or ch 3, I’d like to introduce this lovely new way of starting a dc row. Do take a look at this self explanatory video at In case you are unhappy with this start, do continue with the usual ch 2 or ch 3 start.  However, all instructions are given assuming that you’re using this chainless dc start.
